Sun shines on an exciting tournament
WOODHALL Spa Tennis Club were blessed with perfect weather on Sunday for their annual Open Mixed Tournament.
Ten couples took part playing a round robin format in two sections. The winners and runners-up from each group then went forward to play in the semi-finals.
Pictured are the semi-finalists, from left to right Peter Elphick and Ros Keane (Boston Tennis Club), Ant Hawkins and Lydia Walker, Dan Freeman and Sam Parker (all from Woodhall Spa Tennis Club), Linda Barrows and Mick Audis (Boston Tennis Club).
In the semis, Dan and Sam were convincing winners by 6–1 against Mick and Linda while Lydia and Ant had a much closer encounter against Peter and Ros winning 6–4.
This resulted in a rare all Woodhall final, which proved to be of a high standard and was much enjoyed by all those who had stayed to watch. All four players were at the top of their game with Dan and Sam winning by 6 games to 3.
